Uber has agreed to pay three million dollars to settle a proposed class action lawsuit brought by 2,421 drivers in New York who had accused the ride-sharing giant of docking excessive fees from their fares.

The drivers had accused Uber of breach of contract by including New York state sales tax and a state workers compensation fund surcharge, called the “Black Car Fund” fee, when it calculated their service fees — thereby increasing how much they were being charged.

The drivers also accused Uber of false advertising by offering guaranteed compensation without disclosing the conditions.
